Notre Dame Hospice will provide complete support to your loved one through their advanced illness. Choosing to let us help earlier can increase the quality of the time left for your loved one. The goal of hospice is to help people with advanced illness live as fully as possible. So our care will be directed to support their wishes. Remember, our hospice nurses are uniquely trained in pain control and symptom management so helping your loved one recapture days of joy is a goal of our care.
Your loved one can also benefit from the hope, compassion, support and dignity we bring to our patients. Research shows that patients who receive hospice care have a better sense of hopefulness, say they feel more respected and live longer than those not on hospice. Your loved one will receive spritiual and emotional support as well. And since Notre Dame Hospice is a ministry of the Archdiocese of New Orleans and is the only Catholic nonprofit hospice in the Greater New Orleans Area, we can also give your loved one the peace of mind knowing that everything done for them at the end of life is in accordance with church teaching.
